Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Chri-istmas Day
While shepherds watch their flocks by night
Them see a bright new shining star
Them hear a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today
And man will live for evermore, because of Chri-istmas Day
(Now hear the) trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore, because of Chri-istmas Day
(Because of Christmas Day)
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, come to Bethlehem that night
Them find no place to born the child, not a single room was in sight
By and by they find a little nook in a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boy was born
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today
And man will live for evermore, because of Chri-istmas Day
(Now hear the) trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore, because of Chri-istmas Day
Because of Chri-istmas Day
(Because of Christmas Day ...)
